Bringing people together to exchange learning that leads to social change
Since 1999, the Learning Exchange has connected UBC and people in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. As UBC’s focal point in this community, we are committed to community engagement, student learning and academic priorities.
The Learning Exchange is a place where everyone has something to teach and something to learn – a place where learning is exchanged.
It’s a place for thinking differently about things like social issues, building community and the value of rich real-life experiences. It’s a place to get involved, to explore and to be inspired.
Whether you are a local resident, part of a community organization, a UBC student, faculty or researcher, we know you will find unique learning opportunities here.
